HSBC was one of the first providers of index trackers in the UK. Since 1988, when we launched the first fund, we have expanded our product range in line with the changing needs of clients around the world.
Passive funds are only as good as the indices they track. Index selection is a major contributing factor to strong investment performance.
We select indices with the greatest transparency and liquidity and that capture the best possible representation of the market
We take a pragmatic approach to managing index funds with two equally important objectives: close tracking and increasing risk-adjusted returns
Our tracking methodology and management approach focus on adding value; we aim for returns that closely track the index, while remaining within target tracking tolerances.
Our teams have a clear focus on managing risk - at the start of the portfolio construction process and on a daily basis thereafter
We minimise explicit and implicit transaction costs to mirror index returns as closely as possible
Portfolios are implemented using physical replication and optimisation
Intelligent and efficient handling of index changes, corporate actions and dividend enhancement
In 1988, HSBC was one of the first providers of index trackers in the UK.
The large scale and the diversity of our index strategies allow us to deal at competitive prices and minimise costs for our clients
Our index-based strategies cover global, regional and country indices
Index-based Investing - The value of investments and any income from them can go down as well as up and investors may not get back the amount originally invested. Where overseas investments are held the rate of currency exchange may also cause the value of such investments to fluctuate.
